"What Are Little Boys/Girls Made Of?"

What are little boys made of?
What are little boys made of?
Frogs and snails, and puppy-dog's tails,
That's what little boys are made of.

What are little girls made of?
What are little girls made of?
Sugar and spice, and everything nice,
That's what little girls are made of.
